Social Contribution Philosophy and Direction

"Believe in Potential" We believe in our and your potentiality. We believe in a better world where humanity will collectively become more affluent.

Philosophy

Samsung Electronics is committed to creating the best products and services while making positive contributions to the world. Our core value is: “Samsung Electronics will fulfill its social responsibilities as a corporate citizen." We are dedicated to creating a society where we live well together, so we actively support human and material resources and carry out various social contribution activities.

Based on the philosophy of inextricable coexistence between society and company, we are striving to solve various global issues by expanding the scopes and targets of social contribution to the world beyond contributions to the alienated neighbors and local communities.

In the future, Samsung Electronics will dedicate its efforts and resources to social contribution activities to become a respected company that goes beyond a “good company.”
